Boris Johnson's dad slammed in fiery GMB row as he compares PM to Winston Churchill amid coronavirus pandemic

BORIS Johnson's dad was slammed in a fiery row on Good Morning Britain today after comparing the Prime Minister to Winston Churchill.

Stanley praised his son over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, but was shot down by former Labour Home Secretary and Strictly starJacquie Smith.

Quizzed by Kate Garraway on how his son has fared, Stanley replied: "I think it's extraordinary.

"He comes in with a good majority and then bang, bang bang.

"It reminds me a bit of Winston Churchill in May 1940. Within days you had the Fall of France, Dunkirk, Battle of Britain… bang, bang, bang.

"He is come through this, I would say, in fine style."

Throwing her hands up in despair, Jacquie Smith ranted: "Listen I'm delighted, Stanley, that you're able to get the benefits of free movement across Europe.

"I'm just sorry that because of the actions of your son, my sons aren't able to.

"Well done for giving a party political broadcast on behalf of your son, but not all of us feel the country is in as good a place as it could be."

Kate Garraway also laid into the 80-year-old, telling him: "You were pictured not wearing one [a mask] in December, you are naughty."

Defending himself, Stanley replied: "Sometimes the mask slips, as you know.

"By accident a little bit of my nose… I have a prominent nose. It's not always easy to keep it all covered."

He then went on to reveal he was confused about his son's strict coronavirus rules.

Talking about getting his booster jab this month on Good Morning Britain, Stanley said: "I am very much looking forward to it. I'm going to be fancy free after that.

"One thing that is not quite clear to me is what rules will apply to people who have [had both jabs], will we get a get-out-of-jail-free card?

"We'll still have to be locked down even though we've been notionally been released."

Cutting in, Kate "They have made that quite clear, Stanley.

"Your son has been saying this is not just carrying on in a care-free way because we don't know if the vaccine protects you from spreading the infection.

"And if it works, it could only be reducing the impact of symptoms, which is a huge thing, but still means you have to be very careful."
